World-Craft: Emperor Flinder by elytracephalid World-Craft: Emperor Flinder by elytracephalid
The Emperor Flinder is the most brilliant looking inhabitant of the swamp forests on the volcanic planet, Ares. These curious creatures are mostly found high up in the canopy and are usually seen diving and dashing in flashy flight through the thick and tangled vines and branches of the swamp. They have evolved from amphibian like animals that would glide from branch to branch much like a flying tree frog of Earth does. Over millions of years of evolution they had evolved into some of the most streamlined fliers of the swamp mostly due to the dense atmosphere of Ares.
The most favored food of the Emperor Flinder is the Coolobono Grub. These large juicy critters are not edible to any other species expect the Emperor Flinder. The flinders have evolved to smell the particular smell of the grubs and once one has been detected they swoop down and using its harpoon like tongue, it plucks the bugger out of the mud.

You may stand on the shoulders of giants, but you're still higher than the giants :D .

But yeah, " among the ranks" is a worthy goal.
